sharpness clings
like pulling
knives
(up
my leg)

lying
in bed
that Merry Christmas
never left the blue cabinet
it is tearing at the metal
that is tearing at the room
that is tearing at the scars
that is tearing at my flesh
that is tearing at mind.

please, just take the bandages off
solid food is a no-go

(walls of that color
makes me want to puke)

i sit with kurt and regina
i sit with penguins
i sit with will this ever be over?

This was about when I was in the hospital after leg and foot surgery.
